With unparalleled performance, Millennia knives are designed with innovative features to meet the demands of today's professional chefs.
From the manufacturer
Made from high-carbon Japanese steel so sharpening and edge maintenance is fast and easy
Superior quality Japanese steel
Non-staining Japanese steel resists rust, corrosion, and discoloration. Precision made for strength and durability. The razor-sharp edge makes cutting and chopping a breeze, and is easy to maintain.
Ergonomic handles are made from Santoprene for comfort and polypropylene for durability. It features textured finger points that provide slip resistance and a better grip. Each handle is engineered to gently widen where it meets the blade to help protect fingers.
NSF is a global provider of public health and safety-based risk management solutions. It's a highly respected independent organization that has rigorously tested and certified that Mercer Millennia knives have met their standard for safety, quality, and performance.
Care and handling of Millennia cutlery
The performance of a knife can be diminished if not cared for properly.
Cutlery should never be washed in a dishwasher because intense heat and harsh detergents may cause the handle to deteriorate. Carefully wash by hand with soap and warm water, rinse and dry with a soft towel. Do not soak or submerge in water for long periods of time or use chlorine bleach because it can pit and discolor the blade. Avoid soaking in aluminum or stainless steel sinks because these metals may cause pitting on the blade.
Store in a cutlery block or sheath to preserve the cutting edges and prevent injuries.

Each week, my wife helps a friend in the restaurant industry prep for the weekend... They operate a full grill Santa Maria style BBQ every Friday evening in a local brewery... My wife's normal task is cutting and chopping about sixty pounds of veggies for a house recipe salsa and thick sliced veggies for the grill... She also slices and scores a couple dozen loaves of French bread that will be toasted on the grill...
She complained about every knife -- and there are many -- that was available in the restaurant inventory... I ordered this knife to try to mollify the complaints... Since we received this knife, no more complaints...
That knife is unbelievably sharp right out of the package... Do NOT leave it loose on a counter or cutting table when done... It will cut anything -- including your fingers -- with just a slight bit of pressure...
Since our first review, we have ordered and received two more of these knives... The knives are wonderful... Amazon's pricing is absurd...
Now the pricing issue... If you order a knife with a red or yellow handle color, the Amazon price is $15.29 each... If you order other colors, the price goes up to as much as $28.06 for the white one... The white one is more that 80% more expensive than the red or yellow ones...
When I chatted with Amazon about the pricing, their "representative" could not begin to offer a coherent reason for the pricing difference... I'm a large person... I expect to pay a little more for XXL shirts and jackets... They have more material in them than regular sizes... But that much difference because of the color in the handle... C'mon, Amazon...
The technique to learn is simply to let the knife do the work, and to avoid the habit of "sawing".
The blade stays sharp and never needs sharpening. The handle is very ergonomic and comfortable to use, and I find myself reaching for this particular knife every time I need a knife for anything. It almost never makes it back to the drawer that currently holds 2 full sets of good knives.
A word of caution for every object that uses a sharp cutting blade. Besides being very careful using these implements, you should never, EVER put them in a dishwasher! Dishwashers will ruin a sharp blade over time.
Buy this knife! I'm buying another one today!
